I would start with more Cardinals, they like a larger school than 3.

You could do a pair of angelfish, or dwarf gourami. Rummy nose tetras compliment cardinals and if you can't get more cardinals, the cardinals would most likely school up with the rummy nose tetra's. Six Rummy nose would be a good addition. Lemon tetra's would add a nice touch of yellow if you wanted to go that route.

Gold tetras would look nice.
